“It’s always a lot of fun to put an event together. It’s never really stressful. Most of the time, the bands are someone we know or someone we work with. So yeah, it’s always fun. It’s almost like, “okay, how can we outdo ourselves this year,” said Barker in an interview when asked about his role in the festival’s operations and the artist lineup.
